Sky Bet Championship: December Manager of the Month nominees

12 January 2023

The December nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month Award are:

Carlos Corberán (West Bromwich Albion)

So often a new manager bounce falls back on a lack of foundations. No such worry with the defensively astute Corberán whose side didn’t concede a goal from open play in December as they marched to a 12-point haul from five games.

Paul Heckingbottom (Sheffield United)

A perfect month for Heckingbottom’s side who opened up an 11-point cushion on third place. Their four victories were a triumph for defensive determination and midfield grit allied to clinically taken chances at the other end.

Tony Mowbray (Sunderland)

Having coaxed and cajoled his side through a period without any fit strikers, Mowbray made sure to profit when Ross Stewart and Ellis Simms returned to score a combined six of Sunderland’s 11 goals as they won 10 points from five games.

Vincent Kompany (Burnley)

Kompany’s leaders answered every question posed of them, cantering to 3-0 wins over QPR and Birmingham, coming from behind to beat Middlesbrough and winning a tight affair at Stoke for 12 points and 10 goals from four games.
